I spent last summer building One Day, One Job – the site, the idea, and the business. A lot has changed since then, but I remember that the test post that remained on the home page through much of the site’s development was titled “Hello.” Today’s post will be a fitting replacement as it is also titled “Hello,” and it is about web development. Hello is a Culver City, CA based interactive design agency. They have an extremely impressive portfolio, and they also look to be hiring at the entry-level.
Now that most of you have graduated, it’s time to say hello to the real world. That hello will be a lot more friendly in a place where you can surf and snowboard on the same day, visit awesome art galleries down the street, have a burger across the street at Father’s Office, get free candy and cake on your birthday, play foosball, Wii, XBOX 360, and PlayStation 3, and bring your dog to work. It almost sounds like a job at Hello has nothing to do with saying hello to the real world. It’s more like fantasy land, except it’s not. Creativity and hard work essential to putting together a corporate portfolio as impressive as the one Hello has on their home page. These perks are clearly aimed at building an environment in which creative people can thrive.
Hello currently has a number of job openings, although it’s hard to determine what kind of experience is required for the given jobs. Obviously any job in web design and development requires some kind of experience (the kind where you learn how to do it), but whether a company is looking for people with office experience is unclear. The most entry-level friendly job posting at Hello is for a Flash Developer position. It seems like it’s quite well suited to new college grads. There are also opportunities as a Technical Lead, Lead Designer, or Project Lead. The word “lead” makes us think that these positions might have some management responsibilities, but the job descriptions are vague enough that it’s hard to tell how much experience is really necessary to land the jobs. Take a look at them yourself, and send your questions or cover letter and resume to email@example.com.
